I'm getting a new dig camera in a couple days and will post pics ASAP - of the dual HID setup. From what I see of DucatiGuy's, our wiring is identical - and I have the 6000k color temperature as well.

SHIFT-TECH welcome to the correct forum. The other 1098 forum has gone totally to seed. The forum owner micro manages all content and no discussion of any products that do not sponsor the site.

Total mercenaries as evidenced by the fact that site owner and most mods don't even own a duc, just other forum sites.

Glad you made over, welcome.

Boy that looks really nice. I think this will be my next project.
Did you and DucatiGuy order from the same place?

I don;t think we order it from the same place - but the wiring from DucatiGuy's pics looks identical to mine. I order the 2 ballast/bulb kit off of an E-bay merchant. Good service - I can send the link via PM if you like.

Could you please send me the info too? Do those lights get very hot? I'd hate for something to melt.

Hey Colorob,

Where did you mount the ballasts? Do you have any pics' to share, I'm thinking of doing the same...

Thanks!

Smeegle (did you know your username is spelled "smeelge")?

Unfortunately I didn't have my digital cam during installation - and those fiarings are such a PITA to remove - screw by screw. Otherwise I'd take them off for more pics. I can tell you that I mounted them on each side right behind the fairing - about 10 inches under the tank. The ballasts are small and slide into mounting brackets included with the kit. I just used 2-3 zip ties that came with the kit to secure the ballasts to the frame.

If you get the kit and need help just let me know - it's very satisfying once complete and your HID's POP to life each time you fire up the bike

About my username spelled as "smeelge", yes I know. I made a typo when I registered and am now unable to change it....

Thanks for the info. I heard you had to keep the ballasts away from any source of heat, so I was wondering what the best spot was? Anyway, they look so good, I'm going to order the kit and figure it out when I get them. I will take you up on your offer and thanks, I really appreciate it.
